About me

My name is Frances (I prefer Frankie!) and I’ve been working as a counsellor since 2009.


I have a ‘person-centred’ base of training.  This means I understand the value of a non-judgmental, safe place to talk, where you can be heard and accepted within a genuine, safe, and compassionate therapeutic relationship.  I believe all of us can flourish and grow, with the right support and environment.

I further specialise in CBT Counselling (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). I offer this within an integrative approach, to help you explore your patterns of thinking or relating to enhance helpful patterns and work to your strengths.  

Additionally, I am trained in counselling for children and young people; supporting them with a wide range of concerns, according to their stage of development.  I have experience of working as a school counsellor across all age ranges, and also in an independent school for young people with ASC and anxiety.

We are all different - I offer a flexible approach according to your needs, style and preferences to help counselling be the most effective for you.  I value diversity and welcome ALL.


Life can take us by surprise at times and leave us feeling lacking in resources or ideas of how to get back on track.
You don’t need to do it alone.  

Step Forward Counselling & Support Services offer a choice of support according to your needs, to help you find your way forward.
